    That's as of now.

    But suppose the USA decides that the Southern Asia and the South China Sea is of especial concern (say) . Might not the input of Australia be of value, particularly as there are joint intelligence facilities at Pine Gap in Central Australia (which actually is of world-wide consequence) and at North-West Cape on the Australian Indian Ocean coast ?
    Yes, it would, but we have limited resources and need to concentrate primarily on current threats.

      Although I expect there's a lot more focus on terror groups than anything else these days.
      Unfortunately true. Turf wars always overcome national interests and public safety, which is why the creation of Homeland Obscurity is such a joke.

        Actual, Homeland Security has been a tremendous asset. It radically improved the transfer of data between local, state, and Federal agencies. It doesn't deal with foreign intelligence of the sort discussed in this thread, but you seldom know what you are talking about, being more inclined to simply grouse about everything.

              While you, OTH, always act superior and all-knowing. Kind of like Obama was.

                Not really. Custodae in Latin are "guards". A more relevant point than 99% of our , errr- exchanges..

                  Now, how is this relevant to the original discussion?

                          That's why DHS brought many of the LE agencies under the same umbrella, so they'd be on the same "team".

                            Exactly, but the evidence is mounting up that they still withhold "juicy" bits from each other in a bid to be top dog. After all, when you reach a certain level of security no one can ever know what you have or don't have for certain, and the attitude of agency heads is like students trying to look good in front of their teacher when they are in the Oval Office.

                            There is "sharing", and then there is sharing, if you know what I mean.

                              You do understand that we are talking about intelligence agencies, which are not controlled by DHS, right?

                              DHS is the umbrella agency for domestic security, and 95% (literally) of the agencies it interacts with are not under Federal control and have no obligation to share anything, by law.
